A former economist at the National Bank of Belgium, Herman Van Rompuy began his political career in 1973 as national vice-president of his party’s youth council. He has held various responsibilities within his party and in the Belgian Parliament, serving in turn as Senator (1988-1995) and Member of Parliament (1995-2009).

Advanced Urbanism at MIT

Alexander D'Hooghe
Associate Professor of Architecture and Urbanism
Director, Center for Advanced Urbanism
MIT Department of Architecture
The goal of the Center for Advanced Urbanism (CAU) is to address the urgent questions of our time, broadly defined by the fact that a majority or humanity now lives in urban(izing) environments. The spatial quality of these environments, defined as the attractiveness and success of their public spaces, the networkedness and access between neighborhoods, the ecological and energy balance, and economic development drivers, all relate to each other. Design and research operate to produce blueprints to impact these fields with real-world solutions.

Resilient Cities - Design for Growth

Kent Larson
Principal Research Scientist
Director, Changing Places
MIT Media Laboratory
Accelerating urban expansion demands resilient urban design; cities must be simultaneously livable and adaptable. Networks of compact integrated neighborhoods connected by mobility-on-demand pathways offer a vision for cities where residences, offices, shops, and parks are always within a 20-minute walk; where affordable, convenient, shared-use light electric vehicles replace private cars; where congestion and local sources of air pollution are essentially eliminated; and where powerful new applications improve life for each resident, all while allowing for continued development and growth.

Urban Metabolism and City Typologies

John Fernández
Full Professor, Department of Architecture and Engineering Systems
Head, Building Technology Program
Co-Director, International Design Center, Singapore University of Technology and Design
MIT Department of Architecture
Prof. Fernandez will discuss the emerging field of urban metabolism; the study of the resource intensity of urban economies. Urban metabolism endeavors to establish broad understanding of the relationship between human activities and material and energy flows. Measures of resource intensity are derived to provide pathways for urban sustainability transitions and assist designers, engineers, and policy makers with the challenges facing 21st century cities. Fernandez will present a series of research projects and results of the Urban Metabolism Group at MIT.
